  • Hard work pays off for Morne Morkel

    There is nothing more satisfying for a cricketer than when hard work in practice pays off and for Morne Morkel that moment came in the first Test against West Indies in Trinidad

  • Batting let us down - Gayle

    It was a familiar refrain from West Indies captain Chris Gayle, as he put the blame squarely on his team's batsmen after losing the first Test to South Africa by 163 runs at the Queen's Park Oval in Port of Spain

  • Steyn and Morkel put South Africa on top

    South Africa ended the third day at the Queen's Park Oval in a position of total dominance thanks to the fearsome bowling combination of Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel

  • South Africa complete crushing win

    What was a rout on day three was harder graft on day four as South Africa's fast bowlers, for the second time in as many days, worked their way through the West Indies line-up to deliver a comprehensive 163-run victory

  • Boucher and Benn share honours on tight day

    Sulieman Benn picked up his second five-wicket haul in Tests, finishing with 5 for 120 as South Africa were eventually bowled out for 352, but the visitors will feel they had the better of an attritional second day at the Queens Park Oval
